It comes across as a genuine search engine with Web, Images, Videos and News search functions. Qvo6 Virus and PortaldoSites.com Search would display customized Yahoo! search results whenever you tried searching for something on these sites, but when Globososo displays search results on search.globososo.com, it looks like a legitimate search engine that does not rely on any other domain.
